My internship at MotionMasters has opened my eyes to all that goes on at this fun and fast-paced company. It’s been a very intense three months. After all, I’m not your typical college student working an internship and taking a couple of classes at the same time. I’m married with three children, ages seven, five, and three. I work a full-time job (usually between forty-five and fifty hours a week) as a manager in the heavy equipment industry, and I take a class two days a week. Sleep has taken a backseat to everything else these past few months.
My advice to college students looking to do an internship in the near future; first and foremost, research the companies that are in the industry you are interested in working in and choose a firm like MotionMasters that’s been around for many years and works in so many different mediums. You also want to intern with a company that is going to take the time to show you everything and explain why and how things are done like MotionMasters did for me.
I believe that the folks at MotionMasters were as concerned about me having an exceptional internship experience as I was. Second, once you start your internship, try to work in as many different areas of the organization as possible.
Your internship is an important part of your college education. This is where you can actually start putting into practice the things you’ve been learning the past few years and maybe finally realize which area of the industry you are really have a deep desire to work in. Third, don’t be afraid to ask questions. You are there to learn. At MotionMasters I have been surrounded by a team of knowledgeable, experienced professionals that love what they do and are eager to share their knowledge and experiences.
MotionMasters is a team of creative storytellers using a variety of media to tell their clients’ stories. I’ve learned a lot while here…more than I could have ever expected. These past few months have been very informative, educational, and fun. Thank you to everyone at MotionMasters for making my time here such a valuable experience for me.
Sincerely, Chris Klingler
